Purple Glitter rockstar nails

I love having gel polish to do my own nails. As much as I love painting nails it is so great to not have to worry for 2-3 weeks about them. Another great thing about gel polish is that you can scrub glitter into the inhibition layer to get this
So pretty! I can't stop looking at my nails :D I have got lots of compliments too while out and about which is always nice.
I didn't realise until the day there was a purple nail noh8 campaign on nail blogs so I'm glad I accidentally joined in.

Unicorn Nail Art

If you follow my instagram you have seen these nails a few weeks *ahem months ahem* ago. 
I was totally inspired by several images I had seen on intrinsically florrie and some other bits which can be found on my pinterest nail art inspiration board.

I love the carousel horse and unicorn! They are so pretty and I loved wearing these nails. The little finger is a Rockstar nail (glitter and gel polish) with AB crystals attached. Index is Barielle Princess base colour, middle is Boots 17 Mint Choc Chip, the ring finger base colour is China Glaze Light as Air and the thumb base coat is Barielle Love. The designs were made up of a mixture of those polishes and acrylic paints. These aren't my natural nails I have got ibd gel enhancements on.
I hope you enjoy those and don't forget to check my pinterest boards for inspiration
Love Stacie xx

Dotty tribal design

I hope you are still with me! I'm sorry I don't post art too much these days but I am working really hard on my business and I still have a job so it is hard to fit it all in.
I did these nails a while back when the sun was still shining! I can't remember what polishes I used for definite I think Models Own concrete mixer and the pink is sophies pink also by Models own and I used acrylic paints for the dots. 

The whole design is made of a series of dots. It is so easy to do just plot your design and go for it. I used a dotting tool for most of it and a striping brush for the few straight lines.
 Anyway I hope you enjoy this and it gives you some ideas for your own dotty manicures

Mini Millie nails

As her sister was having her nails done my younger niece did not want to be left out - and rightly so! 
She picked her designs from the nail wheels I have for kids pamper parties.
I used too many different polishes to mention I also used acrylic paints. If you want to know what a particular colour is just ask in comments.

Purple and Pink Tribal Gradient

As I wrote my previous post I remembered I did a similar manicure back in April. This time to do the gradient I used acrylic paint and a brush it worked really well too. These are IBD enhancements in quite an extreme shape as you can see in the second picture they proved hard to work with so I had to shorten them slightly.

The thumb and ring finger are MUA black and Models Own Hedkandi disco mix 
Trying to think of something else to say than thanks for stopping by!
